    • The assignment has two parts, both due by 6:00 p.m. on Monday, December 18.
      • Register for the Facebook Phenomenon Program
      • Submit a list of issues/impacts regarding Facebook and other online communities. Break your list down into the following sections: Issues/Impacts for Students; Issues/Impacts for Student Affairs Professionals; Issues/Impacts for Institutions. Each category should have at least 10 items. Your list can be in the form of questions (e.g., "Do online communities facilitate stalking behavior?") or simple statements of potential impacts.
  • Extra Credit Assignment #1 - Virtual Case Study Competition
    • Completion of this assignment is worth 1/3 of a letter grade added to your final grade. For example, if you end the semester with a B-, then completion of this assignment will move you up to a B. If you end with a B+, then the assignment would move you up to an A-, and so on.
    • The assignment is to register as part of a team for the 2007 Virtual Case Study Competition hosted by StudentAffairs.com by 6:00 p.m. on Monday, December 18.
    • The team you join can include others from this course, and/or other students eligible to participate from NC State, as described in the Rules.
    • To receive credit, forward the email you should receive as confirmation of registration to Leslie Dare.
    • Your registration is a show of good faith to follow through with the competition when it commences in the Spring semester. Please don't just register for the extra credit then cancel registration when the semester is over. 'nuff said.
    • NC State has fielded at least one team almost every year this competition has been in place. One of our teams was a finalist in 2004, and another finished 3rd place overall in 2003, and another 2nd place overall in 2002. Given that the Department of Adult & Higher Education is offering this class this semester, it makes sense that we would field multiple, successful teams that would well represent NC State. Do us proud and register to compete!

Course Description
This course is designed to examine the impact of technology in student affairs. There will be two main areas of focus: the impact of technology on students and their development; and the impact of technology in student affairs practice. Although technical aspects of technology will be discussed in some depth, this is not designed to be a 'technical' course; the content will revolve around implications of technology as both a driving and a supportive element within the Student Affairs profession.
